The highest water  is now believed' to be past, and  nothing is in sight to hinder a  speedy prosecution of the work. ���������  Keretneos Chronicle.  ! Western Float  The Copper Outlook.  Experts in New York expect  nearly all copper slocks to advance  20 to '30 per cent within four  months. The Curb has the following remarks upon the red metal :  The position of the copper mefal  market has been materially  strengthened during the past week,  and at tho moment prices are at  the highest level they have reached  in , many months. Tho leading  Lake producers are sold up through  this month and July and will not  sell a pound of copper for August  or September delivery at anything  under 14 cents. Even at this  figure they are not pressing stocks  for sale, as they feel very strong in  their position' and look for still  further improvement in prices  within a very short time.  Elcctrolyeic is not offered under  13'f and cannot be had under that  price, and other grades have enjoyed a proportionate advance.  There have been some quotations  reported slightly under these figures  during tho last few days, but they  have been on small lots of copper.  Consumers who have tried to get  any quantity of metal at recent  quotations have been refused by  all the leading agencies. Even at  present asking prices it is doubtful if very large supplies could be  engaged.  According to the best information available the buying of the  last month or two has been principally for the account of actual consumers both here and abroad, although naturally there has been  Eome speculative buying. This  speculative account is not considered a dangerous factor, and it  will not come on the market in all  probability until the price has advanced at least a cent or two. By  that time id may be a good thing  for the market to have these speculative holdings hanging over it, as  they wili have a tendency to check  a too rapid advance. A runaway  market is never a desirable thing,  as past experiences have taught us.  Things impossible today may be  commonplace tomorrow.  Argo  party  The Coal Strike.  It was expected in Coleman that  the strike would have been over  last week and work resumed last  Monday," but the dangerous illness of F. II. Sherman prevented,  as he could not attend the meeting of the board of conciliation.  T. C. Brook was appointed in his  place and he says that' he believes  the strike will bo over in a few  days and harmony once more pro-  vail in the coal camps. F. II.  Sherman is ill with appendicitis.

On the surface  shafts have beeu sunk in several  places that showed gold ore averaging over $75 in values. Threa  shifts are now employed in the  tunnel and a 4-drill compressor  will be installed in a few days.  This great tunnel means much for  Greenwood.  E.   L.  F.    Da-vcy,  W. A.

By   Martha   Cobb   Sanford.  <l  Copyrighted,    IMS,    by    Associated   |>  Literary Press. P  ��������� wwwwwwvwwwv./vw������  So far ns Tom  Brewster was concerned, feminine accessories were fashioned for the sole purpose of frightening  masculine  beholders,    if,  for  instance,   when  walking on  the nvenue  In   town  he saw  a  mass  of  dancing  plumes nnd feathery streamers about j  to swoon clown upon him, he shied ns I  would n nervous thoroughbred at the ,  eight of fluttering paper. , j  This  timidity  was  duo  both  to.his j  temperament   and   his   circumstances.  His   mother  had   died  when   he   was  very young, he had had no sisters, had  never cared for women's society, nnd ',  lust,  but  far   from    least,  hud  never ,  availed   himself   of   the   privilege   of [  studying the eternal  feminine in  the  abstract���������that is, by gazing into shop  windows.   ��������� j  And so it happened that Annette J  Avery, with her niflly gowns and j  nlaruni supreme, her whirling parasol,  terrified Tom to the point of paralysis.  From Uie hotel veranda, painfully conscious of his own ineligibility, he  watched other men from time to I hue  stroll off with her, all of them mlupts  In the art of parasol manipulation.  Ordinarily such an exhibition of (lip-  pant superiority would not have piqued  liiin. It would have either roused his  disdain or escaped his observation altogether. But for some reason wholly  unintelligible to himself the thought  of any other man's holding Miss  Avery's parasol sent him into a state  of feverish emotion.  Tom wns nothing if not iugcnioifc  and persistent. In the seclusion of his  t) by 0 hotel bedroom he practiced twirling a carefully poised umbrella over his shoulder. The idiocy  of it tickled his demure sense of humor, and the results were very gratifying.  Whether the bewildering presence of  Miss Avery beside him would upset  this heroically acquired equilibrium  could only be discovered by putting  himself to the actual test lie decided  to risk it.  ���������'.Miss Avery"���������he ventured on having the good luck to find her alone on  "THEN  ACCEPT      ME,      DEAREST,  .PLEADED.  TOM  the veranda in the early part of an  Idyllic summer day���������"won't you let mc  puddle you up the creek a bit this  morning V  Gracious as was Miss Avery's acknowledging smile, it could not quite  conceal the astonishment in her wide  open blue eyes. This Tom noticed,  meeting the implication gallantly.  "You see," he explained, endeavoring to toss off the words with worldly  ease, "you are so diseouragiiigly popular, Miss Avery.' This is t he first  time I ever found you���������detached, as it  were."  Annette Avery laughed with delightful ingenuousness.  "I'd love to go, Mr. Brewster," she  assured   him.     "It's   too   glorious   a  "sunshade?"   It tickled her fancy.  "How do you know'.'" she asked him  tcasingly.  "Because you always carry it," was  Tom's candid admission.  "That's because I haven't auy  other," Annette informed him. "But It  doesn't matter, really. It was just a  garish cretonne thing."  Of these extraordinary specifications  Tom took rapid mental note. The next  day found him scouring the rural metropolis of Greenville for something  that corresponded to Annette's description and to his own visual recollection  of the ill fated parasol. But nowhere  had such a novelty as a "garish  cretonne-sunshade" ever been heard  of.  lie told Annette so when, weary and  disgusted, ho returned lo tlie hotel.  She laughed at him mercilessly.  "Is it so funny V" he asked her wistfully.  '���������"Well, you are," she enlightened him;  "cretonne is quite a now thing for  parasols to be made of. It's generally  used for covering chairs and cushions  and window boxes and things like  that. So very probably all the shopkeepers over in Greenville thought you  were crazy when you asked them for a  cretonne para���������sunshade."  '���������They acted so," was Tom's feeling  ! comment.  A few days later, forearmed with  this wealth of "erolounic" information,  Tom took his way confidentially up to  town. Annette com fori cd herself with  the thought that nothing short of very  urgent business had forced him to postpone even for a day their morning paddle up the creek, which had come lo be  for each of them au accepted and anticipated pleasure.  On his return, although (or more likely because!) it was late in tlie evening  and full moonlight, Tom sought out  Annette in the gay chatting groups on  the hotel veranda and quietly signaled  to her.  "Get something to throw around  you. Annette," be directed, "aud let's  ; go down on the beach for a stroll. Thc  i moonlight is beautiful on the water."  j Annette, her heart fluttering prophet-  i ically, acquiesced without a moment's  ! hesitation.  When they had found a sheltered  nook on the lee side of a picturesque  old rock, Tom took off his overcoat  and spread it for Annette to sit upon.  As lie did so a long, narrow package  dropped on the sand at his feet.  ' "What's that?" asked Annette suspiciously.  '���������Something I picked up in town,"  Tom chuckled.   "Want to see it?"  AYith exasperating deliberation Tom  unrolled the wrappings.  "Of course," answered the truly feminine girl, perched, on the rock.  "There!" be exclaimed at length, unfurling the treasure. "Do you like it?"  "Oh, .what a beauty!" gasped Annette. "I never had such a���������I menu I  never saw such a lovely one. But,  Tom, cretonne would have beou all  right."  Tom shook his head as one who  knows whereof he speaks.  "No," he told'her boastfully. "The  cretonne ones aren't in thc same class  with this. I know because I've got  two awfully garish ones of that kind  for you up at the hotel."  "Why, Tom Brewster!" reproved Annette in astonishment. "Really, I can't  accept"���������  "What?" interrupted Tom calmly as  with the slender tip of the parasol,  i which was all one mass of exquisite  | filmy flowers, he -made marks in the  smooth sand, upon which the moon-  i light shone with uumistakable distinct-  ' iicss.  j Annette, her eyes tracing with fascinated wonder the written words, "I  love you," almost forgot Tom's question.  "I couldn't accept but one," she suddenly roused herself to answer.  "Then accept me, dearest," Tom  pleaded, smiling up at her.  As to what happened then under the  sheltering "sunshade" even the man  in the moon was left to imagine.  REPORTING- PARLIAMENT.  MR.  HENPEKT'S EFFORT.  British Houses Now- Have Their Own  Reporters at Last.  For the  first time  in  six hundred  years the British Parliament is now  being, reported-by its own official reporters.   This is not all.

This   will  moan  a far longer report even than  that of "Hansard."  Happily,   the   fromers   ot  the  new  regime have put in a clause permitting  the   Superintendent   (Mr.  Dods  Shaw)  and  his  eleven   official  shorthand   writers  to   leave   out   "repetitions."   This in the course of the session  will  lighten thc'sarcophagus of  speeches   by  many   hundred   weights I  avoirdupois.    For   instance,   when   a j  speaker  says,  "I-I���������I���������I���������I'  think," j  it will only amount to two words, and j  not six. |  But one wonders what would have ,  happened to Chatham's great "Never!  ���������never!!���������never!!!" |  In great indignation, Pultcncy, in  thc middle of the eighteenth century, '  inveighed against the reporting of  Parliament, and said: "It is making1  speakers account without doors for,  what they said within." An unwar- j  ranlable crime! I  But peers, M.P.'s, Dr. Johnson, and  others reported Parliament more or  less by stealthy, and a change came  at last.  There came a day when���������on February 19, 1835���������the press for the first  time had an allotted position in the  House of Commons. Now there is a  recognized Press Gallery both in  Lords and Commons. For some years  tliere has been a staff of shorthand  writers working under a contractor  who has printed a long succession of  heavy volumes of Parliamentary  speeches known as "Hansard."  And now it is "Hansard"- no longer,  but a staff of shorthand writers up-  pointed by the Legislature itself.  In the matter of reporting to the  people the more democratic House  has always been the House of Lords.  This assembly had a recognized Press  Gallery when the House supposed to  represent the will of the people was  still barring out the reporter.  Now, in this year 1909, while the  House of Commons will be still keeping even the new official reporters up  in the Gallery, where the hearing is  not perfect, the House of Lords will  have its reporters down among the  peers, on the floor of the House, where  not a syllable is lost.  Here, Mr. Arthur Walter, the chief  reporter of the realm, will take down  ovorv word   of  the  debates  with  hi3  The   Letter   He   Wrote to   His  Absent  Wife.  "Are you thinking of my return,  Ileury, und longing to see me once  more?" wrote Mrs. Ileupekt to her  husband, from whom she had been  absent for some weeks on a visit to her  mother.  And when Henpekt took up his pen  to reply he scratched bis head and  thought and thought and finally evolved the following:  "No, dearest; 1 have been so busy  enjoying myself lately���������er���������1 should  say working so hard, that I confess 1  have not been worrying as much over  your return���������1 mean absence���������as I  ought to. You know the good book  says: 'Take no thought for tomorrow.

You  must come when you get good and  ready, dearest, though there is no particular hurry about it, and I will try  to bear up nobly till then aud will  meet you at the station, cheerfully resigned to my fate���������I mean whenever  you send me word that you are coming."  Aud then Ileupekt looked over what  he had written nnd shook his head and  said: "Confound letter writing anyhow!

Three Times Defeated.  "What ho doesn't know about  everything isn't worth knowing,"  someone once said, referring to Mr.  Thomas Gibson Bowles, who has been  fighting for free trade in Glasgow.  And certainly "Tommy," as he is  popularly known by politicians of all  ranks, knows much about many  things. He served in the Inland  Revenue Department, acted as correspondent for The Morning Post during tho siege of Paris, started "Vanity Fair," and then to other accomplishments added a considerable  knowledge of maritime law, while his  practical acquaintance with navigation gained for him a master's certificate from the Board of Trade. Independence is one of his main characteristics, and he would probably have  lnld distinguished oflice ere this had  ln������ been more docile to his party. A  h;������rd fighter for what he* believes to  be right, "Tommy"- is at the same  tine the soul of geniality, and his  smart, witty sayings have gained for  him the reputation of b'jing one of  the most amusi' g men who ever sat  iu the House of "Commons.���������-Tit-Bits.  Once a southern Senator journeying through the south was very  much annoyed at thc delay in getting food served in a certain cafe.  He had given his order and waited  impatiently an unreasonable length  of time, when the waiter appeared  and was evidently looking for some  one who must have gone out without  waiting for his meal. When .asked  by the Senator whom he was looking  for he replied, "A little boy who gave  his order." The Senator replied, "I  am that boy." ' ���������...

"Itlght away." urged Tom. lie was  apprehensive of that '.'laggard."     ,  "All right." agreed Annette. "Just  wait till I run in and tell mother."  "Hrlng your parasol," Tom cried after her and then stcotl dunifoundod at  his own temerity. But by the time  Annette reappeared he had braced  himself literally for the shouldering  of this formidable responsibility. What  matter if on their way to the boat-  house he did carry the frivolous Ihlng  at an angle diametrically opposed In  Its protective purpose? lie was happily unconscious of it, and Annette,  blinking heroically, was too magnanimous to disillusion him.  The canoe launched, Tom, with some  show of savolr falre, tossed the cushions Into It and extended his hand to  Annette. At length, with a long,  graceful sweep of the paddle, they  were off.  The shimmering radiance of the sea  marshes ns they followed the windings of tho- little creek soon subdued  their outbursts of admiration, and they  fell by mutual consent Into dreamy  silence.  Suddenly In'her excitement at sight  of a "blue" crab scuttling sldewlse beneath the canoe Annette lost hold of  her parasol. Before Tom could rescue  If, with hi? paddle a yelping mongrel  of a dog sprang out of the tall grasses  and dashed into the water after it.  "Bravo, old fellowl" called Tom.  "Here, here, sir."  But to tho victor belong the spoils,  nnd the dog made off with his capture.  Tursult was impossible through the  wet marshes. Powerless to avert the  catastrophe, they watched tlio dog's  fiendish demolition of tho fragllo contrivance.  "It's an outrage!" exclaimed Tom.

Tlace an ounce of butler in a clean  enameled, Iron stewpan, and as soon  as It boils add the. apples, together  with sifted sugar to taste, the juice  of half a lemon free from" pips and a  wineglassful of claret.

"You women should all have a voice  in the affairs of thc nation," she exclaimed. "You should assert yourselves. You should be entitled to a  vote."  Hereupon a seeker-after information  arose. The interruption was accompanied by a strong Hibernian accent,  "Sure,, thot wud mean"that we'd be  after bavin' to live in wan place for  six months, wodn't it?" demanded the  speaker.

Why suffer from corns when they  can be painlessly rooted out by usi.'c  ifolloway's Corn Cure  Tasting the Climate.  Thc summer climate of Alaska is  often described as possessing a charm  and fascination which cannot be described in words. Nevertheless in  "Alaska, the Great Country," Ella  I-Iigginson tells of au old Klondiker  who declared that one could "just  taste Alaska climate."  "It tastes different every hundred  miles," he declared, with that beam  of the eye which means love of Alaska  in tbe heart. "You begin to taste it in  Grenville channel. -It tasted different  at Skngway, and there's a big change  when you get to White Horse.  "I golly! At White Horse you'll think  you never tasted anything like it, but  it don't hold a candle there to the way  it tastes going down the Yukon.  "If you happen to got into the ar'tic  circle, say, about 2 In the morning, you  address yourself and kike out on deck,  and you can taste mbre'n climate. You  can taste the ar'tic circle itself. Say,  can you guess what it tastes like?"  I could not guess what the arctic circle tasted like and frankly confessed  it.  "Well, say, it tastes like icicles made  out of them little blue flowers you call  voylets. I picked some out from under the snow once and et 'em. There  was moisture froze all over 'em, so I  know how they taste, and that's the  way the ar'tic circle tastes.  "Just you remember when you get  to the circle an' say, straight goods, If  Cyanide Bill ain't right."  And  nervous  prostration    or   partial  ��������� paralysis   brings  you   to   a   bed   of  helplessness.

Sagacity Shown by Trained Dogs as  Part of an Army.  For dogs lo be enlisted In every great  army of the w.orld, either in the ambulance department or as scouts and dispatch bearers, is surely something of a  novelty.   ���������  In the Franco-Prussian war out of  120,000 killed and wounded 13,000 were  returned as "missing." And who shall  Bay what these men endured? Every  war of the future, however, will see  the dog lessening Its horror. In Germany his education Is at this moment  "being taken in hand by a voluntary so-  ��������� clety with nearly 2,000. members,  among them some of the most able officers In that country's great army.  The wai\dog proper is used for sentry,  messenger and scouting service, while  the ambulance dog's training inclines  him only to scour the battlefield in"  search of the wounded and missing.  The needs of modern warfare not  only call for vast enlarging of tlie battlefield, but also compel the troops to  take every advantage of natural cover.  This and the fact that wounded men  will use their last strength to seek protection from artillery fire, cavalry  charges and the wheels of guns by  crawling iuto thick bushes, ditches and  natural holes will show how difficult  it is for the overworked stretcher bearers of the Red Cross department to notice prostrate figures uot readily seen.  Moreover, modern'. warfare Is carried  on largely by night attack, and. at  night, too, the wounded have to be collected. The ambulance dog, however,  is independent of artificial light and relies only ou his power of scent.  Recently during the great Austrian  maneuvers 200 men were left lying on  the field to represent the wounded, and  the stretcher bearers, working against  time, overlooked thirty-eight of these.  Within twenty minutes the Viennese  dogs had found them .all. Each dog  had about his neck a flask of braudy  or soup and a roll of bandages. The  wounded man, having made what use  he can of this relief, gives the dog his  cap or belt, aud the animal races off  with It to the ambulance attendants,  whom he then conducts to the spot���������  W.

WHERE LIFE.IS CHEAP,  Herman Beings Are 'of Very Little Ac  count In Canton,  la Canton I mot for the second time  a talented youug Swedish civil engineer, who had crossed the Priciflj  with me in search of a job, writes'!.  K. Friedman In .the Chicago News.  He was sanguine,as to his futuiethen;  ���������he was in the dumps now.  t He had just laid before one of the  chief officials of the place, to whom  ���������ho came armed with a letter of introduction, plans for installing a modern  sewerage system iu Canton. "Your  people," he said to the mandarin, "die  off like flies every time the plague  strikes you here. Your mortality rate,  to olre coming from the sanitary cities  of America or .Europe, is appalling.  Let me cut It down for you aud put It  on a par with that of the first centers  of the world."  Then "the mandarin, so the young engineer said, loaned far back lu his  chair, stared at him with u surprised  air and remarked scornfully, but  quietly: "Young man, why did you  come till these thousands of miles to  Canton for tho sake of carrying to us  such mad Ideas? Take them back to  Sweden with you. Let us rest In peace  In China and go our own way undisturbed by these silly newfangled Ideas.  Build modern sewerage systems In  Sweden to your heart's content, (ou iu  every city for all we care. We will  have none of them in Canton."  When the engineer, crestfallen arid  bewildered, asked why, the answer  was at once forthcoming: "There are  too many people living Iu Canton now.  We shouldn't know what to do- with  more if we had them. Our people, as  It Is, are finding it hard enough to  make a living."  This mandarin's attitude sums up iu  a way at once amusing and illuminative the oriental attitude toward life  and thc living.  Nothing seems cheaper in the orient  than life, and, as a matter of fa.ct. little else is so cheap. When you pass  through the labyrinth of streets that  make up Canton, packed almost to  suffocation with human beings, you  begin to understand why so little value is placed on life. Your understanding of (he situation grows clearer  when you realize tho battle-like competition going on here from early  morning until late at night for the  few handfuls of rice and millet that  sustain the existence of each of this  swarming mass.  Everyone. Needs a Tonic in the  Spring to Build up the Blood  If you want new health and strength  in the spring you must build up your  blood with a tonic medicine. After  the long indoor winter months are  past most people feel depressed and  easily-tired. This means that the  blood is impure and watery. That  is what causes pimples and unsightly  eruptions. To this same .condition  is due attacks of rheumatism, thc  sharp stabbing pains of neuralgia,  poor appetite, frequent headaches and  a desire to avoid exertion. These  troubles can all be banished by thc  use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Every  dose of this medicine makes now,  rich blood, which drives out impurities, stimulates every organ, strengthens every' nerve and brings a feeling of new health and energy to weak,  tired out, ailing men and women, Mrs  Frank Murphy, Clark's Harbor, N.

Of all the feats known to gymnasts  the most dangerous Is ' the "triple  turn." This moans,that, starting with  a run from a springboard, the acrobat  makes three-complete turns In the air.  This turn has killed more first class  tumblers than any other trick knowri  to the profession.  The first man to try the triple turn  was a performer In Van Ambcrg's circus. He struck ou the back of Ills'  head and broke his neck. This was iu  38-12. Three years later a performer atN  Atley's, in London,'tried it, but'he was  instantly killed. John Aymer, a famous acrobat, attempted the feat lu  1859. He was killed.' The famous Bob  Stickney accomplished the feat once In  a gymnasium In New York, but got  euch a scare thnt he never dared attempt it in the ring.  The only 'person living or dead who  has ever done the'feat more than once  is John Worland, who has accomplished Jt six times.  Last year Dan O'BvIen, one of the  star leapors ut the Hippodrome, iu  New York, found that he was "overthrowing" the double and determined  lo try the triple. Lie did the trick to  perfection, making a clean light and  keeping his feet. But O'Brien, while  naturally elated at having accomplished a stunt that places him among a  very few of the most daring and skillful performers In the world, Is not  anxious to try it a second time. "Never again!" says Little Dan, as he is  known " in acrobatic circles. "Ot  course," he added, "in our business  you are always likely to break an arm  or a lag, but in the triple somersault  you are taking a big cbauce with your  life. Never again for me!

Considerable excitement has been  aroused in Paris by the question raised  by Dr. Bosredou of Brive and taken  up by his Paris collr-nfriics whether a  doctor has a right under certain circumstances to take a man's life.  Dr. Bosrcdon wns the first medical  man who arrived on the scene of the  railway accident "In Drive tuunel. The  stoker of the engine, a man named  Le/ort, was caught under the wreck  and slowly burned to death.  "When I reached him," writes Dr.  Bosredon, "the man was screaming  with agony and begged me to kill him.  There was no possible hope of saving  his life. He was slowly being burned  to death, and his body was horribly  crushed.  "I considered that my conscience  permitted me to put an end to his  agony and asked a gendarme for his  revolver. He said that he had none,  and the stoker was slowly burned to  death instead of being put out of his  pain there and then." ��������� Loudon Express.  So Near and Yet So Far.

They Are Not the Most-Terrible of the  World's Catastrophes,  ft is the general opinion that earthquakes constitute the most terrible of  the world's catastrophes both as regards loss of life and destruction of  property.  This, however, is not so.  The couvulsion In southern Italy  killed not less than 200,000 people, and  in this respect it is easily the most  dreadful occurrence of its kind. The  historic Lisbon earthquake,' which  ranks next below it in regard to the  number of fatalities, caused 50,000  deaths in that one city alone and about  au equal number elsewhere. The South  American one of 18G7 was responsible  for 30,000. That which destroyed Aleppo In 1S22 slew 20,000. "These are the  four worst earthquakes concerning  which anything like reliable statistics  are obtainable; and the total combined  loss of life, it will be observed, did not, .  at any rate, exceed 350,000.   ,.  But when the Yellow river^burst its  banks in September, 1SS7, more than  7,000,000 people were drowned in the  resultant great flood, which covered to  an average depth of six feet a popu-;  lous Chinese province the size of Scotland. Thus in this one catastrophe  more lives were lost than, in all the  earthquakes recorded in the world's  history.  Then, again; there' is pestilence. T^he  black death killed in China, where it  broke out, 13,000,000 people, in the rest'  of Asia 24.000,000 and 30,000,000 in  Europe, or G7.000.000 in all.

Of some of the crude and outgrown  methods used on China's Grand canal  a writer in the North China Daily  News remarks: "Tho junction of the  real canal with the Wei river was not  by means of a lock, but simply a high  and steeply sloping mud bank, over  which the grain vessels had to be  dragged by the force of perhaps many  hundreds of meu. It should be borne  In mind thnt in China thc lock of a  caual is not much more like our idea  of what that name connotes than It ls  like a padlock. Amid constant and  often serious changes of level, with an  uncertain and net Infrequently a  scanty supply of water, and with n  grain fleet which traveled In blocks of  some eighty vessels under one officer.  It was necessary to devise some way  for kccplug them together and for  transferring them ns a consolidated  unit with this in view.  "For this reason a Chinese lock on  the Grand canal is nothing but a stone  gateway into which large boards may  be lowered through a groove In the  stones, restraining most of the water  from Its flow, until there is n depth  sufficient to float all the craft, when  the boards nre pulled up and the entire licet passes through.  "After this the boards are again  lowered for another division of tbo  grain boats. In case the water gives  out���������a by no means unlikely occurrence���������there Is nothing to do but to  wait until more couics from somewhere."  A Terrible Loss.  As is the case with all occurrences  where tragedy is uppermost, the collision between tbe Itcpublic and the  Florida brought out some amusing incidents.   Here is one:  When the Republic passengers were  taken on board the Baltic many of  them had saved practically none of  their belongings. Oue lady, arrayed  in a nightgown and fur coat, all she  had brought with her from the sinking  ship, climbed over the side of the Bal-  tic and spied a sort of bulletin board  on which notices of interest to the  passengers were posted. The following caught that lady's eye:  "Lost.-One gold button. Finder  please return to"���������  The possessor of one nightgown and  one fur coat looked long and solemnly  at that notice.  "Lost, oue gold button," she murmured dreamily. "Think of it���������oue  button lost!"  Then she went into hysterics.���������New  York Times.  The Eagle Dam.

It will form a lake forty-five  miles In length, 200 feet deep, with n  capacity great enough to flood 2,000,-  000 acres to tho uniform depth of ono  foot. The dam which ls destined to  work this wonder will be a mountain  of concrete, the estimates now being  figured calling for 410,000 cubic feet  of that material.

Talking  about  the  prospects of  copper, the Curb says :  The heavy buying is duo to the  fact that tlie large consumers have  discovered finally that goueral  business is improving rapidly aud  that thc supply of copper is none  too large. They have been buying  from hand to mouth for some time  but now that they see signs of  prosperity ahead they are anxious  to lay in supplies. In trying to do  so they find that copper is not so  plentiful as they thought it was  and thc advancing prices are tho  result of their efforts to make up  for lost time. "With the producers in such an independent position  as they are at the present time  there is every reason to expect 35  cent copper within a few months,  possibly sooner than that. This is  the opinion of the best posted copper men in the business and they  have been right for a long time.  The sales have been so heavy  this month and the deliveries on  previous sales have gone forward  to such an extent that it is safe to  to predict a big decrease in the  amount of copper on baud for the  current mouth, as shown by the  Copper Producers' statement which  has just been issued, and there is  liable to be a scramble for supplies  such as has not been witnessed for  a long time.  Viewed broadly, therefore, it is  evident that the metal is in a  stronger position than it has been  fora long time and ' a steady advance in price and a constant increase in the volume of business  may be looked for.  in a human life, it speaks to us of  the infinite Jove and truth. And  thus it comes, and when wo refuse  to let these shine forth in our lives,  we are denying Him. When we  do we are giving Him the highest  worship.

Struck Her Limit.  Nikola Tesla, famous for his  original and daring electrical researches, said the other day of perpetual motion :  Itfiwill come. That is to say,  eoruething equal to or superior to  it will come. There is the Wright  machine, for instance. Doesn't  that solve the impossible problem  of a man lifting himself up by his  own boot strap's ?  Ambition, said Mr. Tescla, accomplishes daily miracles. Remember the ambitious hen.  Thi.s faithful creature always  laid an egg of the same size as the  Clipper Jokes.  Arthur Row, of Robert Ililliard's  company of "A Fool Tliere Was,"  has a friend, an officer in the army  at ono of tlie Western forts, who  told him this incident : A couple  of young fellows in the company,  having secured leave of absence  oue day to go to the nearest town,  returned late, overstaying their  time. Row tells how they squared  themselves and got by the sentry  without arrest. Arriving at the  lines they were met with the usual  challenge, >' Who goes there?"  "Friends," was the answer of  one of the young" delinquents, suggestively adding, "with a  bottle."  "Advance and present tbe countersign," said the sentry, softly���������  and tbe password got the boys  through the lines without furthei  delay.  One  porcelain.nest egg used on .her as  a decoy.  Perceiving his hen's intense ambition, the farmer put a porcelain  goose egg iu her nest. She laid a  goose egg.  Then the farmer, greatly pleased,  put in the nest a whitewashed football. The next time he visited the  barn he found in the nest an egg  as big as a football, but no hen  was in sight. ' lie took up the egg  aud saw engr.aved on it : .

Titus, 1:10���������They profess that  they know God, but iu works they  deny him.  There havo been some very good  and some very sincere people who  have found it impossible to believe  that there is a God. Some of them  have sought long and earnestly  for Him, and have not found Him.  The world about them, as they  have lived, have seemed to them  to shut Him out. And sorrowfully they havo given up the  search. Rut theyr have nevertheless gone on, living lives of kindness and purity and putting to  shame many who have professed a  more assured faith. Of them we  might almost say, inverting tbe  words of tbo text, "They profess  that they know not God, but their  works confess Him."  Such ' people have been called  atheists as a term of reproach, and  have often been looked upon in  horror by people whose lives were  far less lofty and pure. But, however that may be, let us not forget  that it is not atheists of this kind  who are spoken of in the Bible. It  is another kind of atheism altogether that tho Bible so severely  condemns, the atheism, not of the  man who thinks there is no God.  no is the practical atheist, who denies God in his works.  Boswell once asked Dr. Johnson  if the comedian. Foote were not an  infidel. "He is an infidel, sir, as  a dog is an infidel," was thc vigorous reply. " lie has never thought  on the matter."

One donation, however, be drew  the line at, though with character  istic gentleness, he did not apprise the donor of the rejection of  her gift. Her seven-3'ear-old-son  was sent with it, delivering this  message :  Mother wants  to know if you  like chicken, and if you  do, here's  The Philosophy of Life.  Envy is almost the only vice that  is practical at all times aud in  every place, the only passion that  can never li.e quiet for want of irritation ; its eil'ects, therefore, are  everywhere discoverable, and its  attempts always to be dreaded.���������  Dr. Johnston.  It is easy to run" a business or  anything else on jawbone, -but  there comes a day when the creditor must be paid and then friendship ceases. Pay as you go, thus  avoiding strained relations and  preserving independence.  You find yourself refreshed by  the presence of cheerful people;  why not make an earnest effort to  confer that pleasure on others. Refrain from saying gloomy..- or cutting things and the result will be  pleasure and happiness.  Give us, O give us the man or  woman who sings at work.

A bill of fare never sounds good  enough to deceive people who havo  hung around hotels all their lives.  You may not hope to be unprejudiced. The next best chance,  then, is to have creditable prejudices.  Tho most uncertain ,thing in the  world is probably the tenor a man  makes up when there is singing. ,  - The inveterate croaker is a  gloomy creature, to be sure, but it  is doubtful if he is as annoying a?  the inveterate joker."

Well, that depends,  drawled the great humorist. If a  book has a leather cover it is really  valuable as a razor strop. If it is  a brief, concise work, such as the  French write, it is useful to put  under the short leg of a wabbly  table. An old-fashioned book with  a clasp can't be beat as a missile  to hurl at a dog; and a large book,  like a geography, is as good as a  piece of tin to nail over a broken  pane of glass.���������Christian Register.

We go in the same  careless, self-centered way, just as  if tho rather we profess to believe  in were dead.  A man's real creed is the life he  leads.
